Secret US Embassy Cables

Wikileaks began on Sunday November 28th publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into US Government foreign activities.

The cables, which date from 1966 up until the end of February this year, contain confidential communications between 274 embassies in countries throughout the world and the State Department in Washington DC. 15,652 of the cables are classified Secret.

The embassy cables will be released in stages over the next few months. The subject matter of these cables is of such importance, and the geographical spread so broad, that to do otherwise would not do this material justice.

The cables show the extent of US spying on its allies and the UN; turning a blind eye to corruption and human rights abuse in "client states"; backroom deals with supposedly neutral countries; lobbying for US corporations; and the measures US diplomats take to advance those who have access to them.

This document release reveals the contradictions between the US's public persona and what it says behind closed doors – and shows that if citizens in a democracy want their governments to reflect their wishes, they should ask to see what's going on behind the scenes.

Every American schoolchild is taught that George Washington – the country's first President – could not tell a lie. If the administrations of his successors lived up to the same principle, today's document flood would be a mere embarrassment. Instead, the US Government has been warning governments -- even the most corrupt -- around the world about the coming leaks and is bracing itself for the exposures.

The full set consists of 251,287 documents, comprising 261,276,536 words (seven times the size of "The Iraq War Logs", the world's previously largest classified information release).

The cables cover from 28th December 1966 to 28th February 2010 and originate from 274 embassies, consulates and diplomatic missions.

Anonymous said... This WikiLeaks issue, as stated by Government Officials, that it will place our men and women of the Military, in harms way. I truly try to see how, seeing how they are hurt or killed within a War of no malice.
The Pentagon seeks revenge, and not to bring Law against WikiLeaks. Government Employees just ran off at the jaw, and got busted. Some issues within this Leak should not be released. Unfortunately a lot of people seek punishment against those who got busted by the Leak, for their failure to represent the People Of The United States.
I guess in the mad rush, by Officials Of The United States Government, to push forward a censorship of the Internet, this WikiLeak and the People of the United States use the Internet to connect to bring a honest change into our Government has Officials concerned about losing their jobs or being held Accountable. Allow me to share below their censorship concept below...
The 19 Senators Who Voted To Censor The Internet vs. the International Boycott Of The Arabic Drug Empire Phase 4.
First you must understand, what phase 4 of this Boycott is about, it is a 10x10 posting into issues we face as a People. 2nd, that the People Of The United States have outgrown Government Officials and they seek a change, it was noted and shown by the movement of the Tea Party, and the voice of the people against this Health Care Bill.
One issue not seen to you is the International Boycott Of The Arabic Drug Empire Phase 4, in a goal to interface with the voices of the people to bring forward a change in Government to vote out every last man and woman in Office because of their failures in a lot of different issues.
The Freedom Of Speech is a God Given Right and it is the voice of the People that guides the destiny of this Country and not Government Officials. They are bound by Constitutional Laws, and must obey that of which they are voted into Office to serve.
So I am going to go ahead and pick a fight. I have had it and still people run round and round and through their hands into the air and give up. When you do this you miss out on your God Given Right To Freedom.
The line has been drawn in Tennessee, make a line at the top of Tennessee then from East to West, this area below all the way to Florida is the area covered by Fasc Concepts.
Now these 19 Senators who wish to silence a People in what is now being called The New World Order Movement. You 19 Senators and all your muscle, you have entered into the Matrix of the net where I am, and if you wish to leave this battle filed, and maintain your life within Government Office, we will allow you to leave, but first you must go on live TV and withdraw your insult to the American People and apologize wait Im not fished, then put your heads between your legs and kiss your on ass.

Join us, unite with us in the International Boycott Of The Arabic Drug Empire ....
